House of Pain is here!

Posted by Africa Wrestling On April - 4 - 2016

House of Pain 2016

Freedom Fight! The Parow Civic Centre plays host once again to the Africa Wrestling Alliance’s flagship bust-up, the House of Pain. This celebratory wrestling event sees South Africa’s top athletes compete in back-to-back bouts, one-on-one match-ups and ring-rumbling tag-team battles.

TITLE SHOTS

El-Marco will be defending the lightweight title that he won in December when he beat The Hillbilly and Devon Shooter in a Triple-Threat match. Who will get the opportunity to wrestle this coveted belt from El-Marco’s hands?

Cruiserweight champ, Ed Electric has managed to retain his title for 18 months straight – will this House of Pain mark the day he succumbs to a more skilled wrestler? And if so, will he put up a fight?

HEAVY HITTERS

Watch as heavyweights such as Missing Link, Johnny Palazzio, Shaun Koen, Freak Show and The Oz go head-to-head in ground-shaking bouts.

This House of Pain will also mark the debut of two new combatants, Jay Cooper and Mike Zander. One thinks he’s a model and the other thinks he is the greatest gift to the sport of wrestling. Watch as the AWA stalwarts put them both in their place!

So feel free to stay out late with us at this year’s first House of Pain event – the next day is Freedom Day! Watch this space for more updates on this exciting event.

Ticket Prices: R80 All reserved | R50 All unreserved

Enquiries: 082 456-0792

Join the AWA Training Camp!

Posted by Africa Wrestling On July - 2 - 2014

THE SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCKS IS NOW ACCEPTING ADMISSIONS

The AWA training centre has thrown open its doors to all over the age of 16 years old. ‘We don’t discriminate, we take anyone and everyone in,’ says Shaun Koen, founder of the Africa Wrestling Alliance. It’s true. The organization welcomes both boys and girls, men and women, any colour or religion. ‘The benefits of our style of training are numerous; you don’t need to aspire to be one of our athletes in order to train.’

With its boot-camp style of fitness, members of the AWA Training School receive excellent cardiovascular training in combination with learning the basics of grappling, which is a form of self defense. Wrestling is also a great team sport, so serves as a nurturing environment high in camaraderie and teamwork. ‘It’s like being part of a new family,’ adds Shaun. Sure, if a somewhat overactive one. In truth, despite the high-impact, no holds-barred aesthetic, the reality about wrestling training is that it’s really just good clean fun.

Something for the ladies – The AWA recently opened up an exclusive ‘Diva’ division, targeting like-minded women who would like to cultivate their skills in the ring. Again, levels of aspiration are dependent on the athlete and what goals they have in the realm of wrestling.

Toughening up – Are you an ex-rugby player, gymnast or body builder? Maybe your sporting career has been more intense? Looking to try something new? Maybe take your body to a new limit or your fitness in a new direction. Do you think you have what it takes to be a fully-fledged wrestler?

No experience needed. We can train from a grassroots level all the way to professional if you are committed to the journey.

If you would like to join the AWA School of Hard Knocks training camp, contact us at trainingct@awfwrestle.com or 082 456 0792 (office hours) and we’ll set you down the path to wrestling glory and physical fitness.
